Caius' only true descriptor is Lawful, meaning that he holds order as his only real concern. By contrast, as a Chaotic personality, at best you have a rules are for other people outlook, and at worst you'll go out of your way to break them. And you hold individual freedoms above any "Greater good"

Edit: Same as good Lawful Evil: A dictator or some such, Chaotic evil: Piss to the world I'll kill you all! Neutral Evil: a Card carrying villian.

...and Caius is willing to kill ten to save a thousand and follow orders to the letter if he's getting paid for it.

Me, on the other hand... I'd try to save all thousand and ten, but if I couldn't I'd just save as many as I could. And I follow orders if they're from someone I respect.

If you weren't General Staff I'd immediately say no. Seeing as you are though, I find it diifficult to make a decesion on that. I have no real objections to you being an elf or a nymph, as I believe you are capable of it. (And 1337, don't think I'm picking on you, as said, she is General Staff) I suppose I should be a little more specific on the nymph as a race though before you make your own decesion.

1.) As mentioned, Nymphs, while capable of wearing clothing, do tend to be nude about 99% of the time. Not to mention they are supposed to be the epitome of beauty, capable of seducing more or less anyone they choose (regardless of gender).
2.) While nymphs are certainly the most powerful of magical users, they are also the most frail, seeing as a simple fire could be potentially deadly to a wood-nymph, and a hot sun would be so to water-nymph who does not remain in some constant sort of contact with a larger body of water.
3.) Nymphs are more or less fleeting and altogether think and live on a different wavelength from all other races. This is mostly because they're the oldest and most "God-like" thing in the universe. I'll be blunt, you'd have to be a pretty weird nymph to be a part of a mercenary guild of your own free will. Other nymphs would probably think of you as a freak.
4.) Nymphs are rare. Judging from more believable reports, there's probably only 3 or 4 nymph sitings a year. This, of course, is outside Butea, where they are slightly more tolorent of others seeing them, perhaps even the occasional contact. If you were a nymph, you'd have to expect others to act rather, well, uncomfortable around you. Plus, you'd make yourself a target, as there are the more dubious individuals and groups in the The League of Antar and the Mydean Caliphate, perhaps even The Kingdom of Terra who could possibly want to lock you for scientific study or even ritual cleansings (a.k.a. burn you at the stake). And then, on the complete opposite end of the spectrum, there would people who worship you. No literally, they would threat you like a deity. And despite as flaterring as that might sound, just give it some thought. I'm sure you can think of a few things a late Medieval/Pre-Renaissance soceity may do to a deity that would be rather unappealing.
5.) Because nymphs are one with nature, you'd be consigning your physical appearance to one of the following catagories depending on what sort of nymph you would choose:
-Somebody with dirt or bark colored skin and leaves growing somewhere on them.
-A floating mass of flower petals as seen in the new Chronicles of Narnia movies.
-A liquid body made of blue/clear water, whose overall texture might cause some to think of a certain Pokemon called Ditto.
-A body made of sand.

Overall, I think the idea of being a nymph would be pretty cool, but horribly inconvenient, especially for a ranking member of a merc group. I'm not trying to dissuade you, merely give the facts. I would however--in my professional opinion so to say-- suggest you go with elf over nymph.

My fingers hurt.

That's the thing, you don't pigeon hole into any category. Caius is Lawful, but not right to the wall so, same with me and good.

Caius is lawful because he's ex-military, he's used to taking orders, and having them obeyed without question, on pain of death.

I could always be some sort of outcast...

Wah? *horrified look* Do I really have to have branches growing out of my skin? Can't I just have like dark looking skin?

And did nymphs always have skin like that? I've seen paintings and stuff (yes I did my reasearch) and they were often depicted as just beautiful young women.

Also, as Chaz pointed out to me in IM, what I'm describing also very well describes driads and water-driads. I have failed to mention that in Varient Cappa 2, Nymphs and driads ARE grouped together.

What about water nymphs and pool-nymphs?

Don't think we're ignoring you guys, Chaz, Cata, and I are having a rather long-winded and turbulent debate over MSN about the nymph issue.

Ah, okay. I was starting to wonder if you'd died...

I think shape shifting as far as my appearence goes would be good.

(btw, how do you get an MSN messanger acount?)

Well, yes basically. Just make sure your original character doesn't completly disappear under the new facade.

Finally!

Name: Nephalae Inuit Saraesa Hayades von Leuce
Gender: Female
Age:80
Position: Captain within the Mobius Legion
Homeland:Takara
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Equipment: Boarspear, leather armor, shortbow. Nephie also has magical abilties similar to elves, though being half nymph she’s stronger than most elves.
Archetype: Lady of War, Rebellious Princess

Personality: Nephelae, or Nephie as she prefers to be called (though she also answers to Inuit), can be a little strange. She did live 50 years of her life in the woods after all, so she sometimes seems a little out of place in the world. Of course, nobody knows that, so most people just think that she’s a little eccentric. Sometimes, at night, she likes to sit in the atrium garden and sing to herself, and she can have a tendancy to daydream sometimes. But most of the time, she is what is often described as “elegant.â€
